Meet the elements by the sea
Explore 62’s small island outside Venoy in the Nordfjord region offers the chance to stay where the ocean and sky meet. You stay in an old fisherman’s house. We’ve refurbished the house, and it now consists of two “new” flats on the second and third floors.
Apartment one has room for five people, and apartment two has space for up to seven. On demand, we have room for six people on the beautiful Colin Archer sailboat ‘Westland’ as well. In total, we can service groups up to 18 people.
This summer, in 2020, we offer family holidays, group events and adventure for all kinds of groups.
Ski and sail Sunnmore alps is a trip for those of you who like the idea of powder skiing and ski touring in the untouched mountains in Hjørundfjord at the west coast of Norway.
Hjørundfjord is one of the most distinctive and magnificent fjords of Norway. Among the rugged, wildest and most beautiful mountain areas in western Norway the fjord creates a unique scenery for our ski and sail adventures. The view with blue steep fjord and white mountains with powder snow will guaranteed make memories for life!
5 days trip where we ski touring new mountains every day due to weather conditions. Season is from February to May. Read more and book your trip...
In our summer adventure we sail the amazing Nordfjord and explore new activities like surfing, climbing, mountain biking, hiking and kayaking every day. Perhaps we meet some sea eagles and catch some Norwegian wild salmons. All in one fjord.
About our concept "ski and sail" We mostly use the motor because of time schedule but we host the sail when we have time and wind conditions to sail. Norway at winter time have fast changing wind conditions in the fjords surrounded by high mountains.
Second note! All explorers must help out with some "work" onboard, like prepare breakfast / dinner and hoist the mainsail. Westland is not a cruise ship but more likely an expedition boat. It is important that every explorer has the right expectations and understands our concept correctly.
Third note! This very first season, 2020 we only have group booking from 4 - 6 explorers. It is important for the atmosphere onboard that our guests know each other. Also, it is important for our mountain guides that the ski & hike level of the group is about the same.
